Détails

In September, the (Open) Data Book Clubs from Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal are all working on elections data. This event is the opportunity to show what the Montreal community has been able to do with the federal elections open data. The format is simple, every speaker has a few minutes to present an analysis related to the federal elections. The list of data sources used is available on this Hackpad (https://hackpad.com/ODBC-4-Federal-Election-2015-4nt6gWD9fW6).

We are organizing this event in partnership with the Semaine Quebecoise de l'Informatique Libre (http://wiki.facil.qc.ca/view/Comit%C3%A9_FACIL_M%C3%A9dias/SQIL2015/Activit%C3%A9s_en_pr%C3%A9paration), a week full of events to promote open software (and data).
